I'll be singing to keep from groaning in fear. It's one of your smaller airlines that has been entrusted with getting me to New York and parts of Connecticut. You can always tell it's a budget flight wheq the stewardess offers you refreshments in the form of a grape soda and a moon pie. Actually, I'm glad to be going northward in any formal conveyance. I'd begun to suspect that I would have to honor my invitation to the National Critics Institute by breaking open my piggy bank and hitchhiking. Company management-type officials were concerned with tile expense of my month of workjstudy with the Big Time Critic Honchos. But it's tough to book lecturers like Judith Crist and Clive Barnes .,-,/ : CHA'RL'BSTONi-.W. VA. for a buck and a quarter. Hence, institute participants (regrettably named Critic Fellows) pay a tuition that covers room, board and all theater tickets to more than 20 events, as well as salaries for the lecturers. In addition to the top drawer Broadway critics, professionals who will work on a one-to-one basis with the 10 Critic Fellows include producers, directors and performers. So the cost of the National Critics Institute isn't chopped liver. But the seminar is limited to 10 and the entire enterprise is underwritten by the Eugene O'Neill Memorial Theater Foundation. It is an organization with a-very.healthy interest in the future of American theater .and those who help shape it through reviews and commentaries. I'm delighted to be participating this year -- even if they will insist on calling me a Critic Fellow. There is no substitute for the kind of educational experience provided by this month-long seminar. I believe the kind of knowledge to be absorbed will mean a lot not only to the quality of arts coverage in the Gazette, but also to the entire Charleston arts community. By the way, those of you who would like your names whispered in dive's ear ask yourself: What nice thing have I done for my favorite arts columnist lately? It doesn't matter. The only name I intend to keep whispering in his ear is my own. A name that is being shouted about is that.of Mike Hotopp,.your basic Local Boy Makes Good. In town last week to monitor work on a production of "The Wizard of Oz" (which he designed), Mike stopped by to tell me how very well indeed" he is doing in New York City. He is a fellow of whom Charleston can be genuinely proud. Mike hinted that his company Associated Theatrical Designer Ltd. -- he and Paul d'Pass are the owners -- is on the brink of designing a major Broadway musical. He couldn't say anything further, however, because it's bad luck to talk about such things before they're definite. Of interest to admirers of the Charleston Light Opera Guild's production "Man of La Mancha" is the news that the design Mike used for the set will be used on a national tour of "La Mancha." He says the National Bus and Truck Company will take to the road this fall with a "La Mancha" set by Hotopp -- based on the troupe's apprecia- tion of the Guild's set. Last but not least on the Hotopp Achievement List is his engagement as designer of a series of dinner theaters. Two will be renovated from existing structures -- one a 1908 Victorian flavor theater in Indianapolis and the other a 1925 art deco hall on Glen Cove, Long Island. .Most exciting is a dinner theater being designed from the ground up in Moline, 111. Mike's design firm . was hired before the architects, and will provide coordinated artistry for everything from the stage, lighting fixtures to tablecloths, diina, silver, chairs, and carpeting. Mike Hotopp is very much part of what is happening in American theater today. In the next four weeks I will be filing columns and stories about goings on in the wondrous world of the arts as seen from the National Critics Institute headquartered in the O'Neill theater; ta'Waterford,-Conn.
